The history of this winery goes back to 1874 when the old winery (still standing and now home to a swish visitor centre / tasting room) was first established in the village of Fuenmayor by the Navajas family. Today’s large, modern, ultra-clean winery is situated some 10 minutes away within site of the spectacular Cantabrian mountains.
As well as making first-class Rioja, they have expanded into other regions to produce great white wines. This Verdejo from Rueda is a lovely example; clean, modern winemaking creating a fresh, pure wine with real personality.
Think Sauvignon Blanc with the intensity turned down a bit; more elegant and food-friendly, this is a great match for most fish dishes.

This is a great value certified organic wine from the Castano family in South East Spain. This Macabeo (known as Viura further north in Spain and Macabeu in France) is a lovely light, fresh wine with good depth of citrus flavours. A versatile food wine with enough flavour to stand up to some spice but also delicious on it’s own!
